value 6*

Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups old-fashioned oats

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup (about 4 large) egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute

1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk

1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. (about 1 standard scoop or 2 smaller scoops) vanilla protein powder with about 100 calories per serving (like the kind by Quest Nutrition or Tera’s Whey)

2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener (or another no-calorie granulated sweetener; see HG FYI)

1 tbsp. cinnamon

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/4 tsp. nutmeg

1/8 tsp. salt

2 tbsp. chia seeds

1/3 cup raisins, roughly chopped

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray.

Place 1 1/2 cups oats in a food processor. Add all remaining ingredients except chia seeds and raisins. Puree until uniform.

Gently fold in chia seeds, half of the chopped raisins, and remaining 1/2 cup oats.

Evenly distribute batter into 6 mounds on the baking sheet, about 1/3 cup each. Use the back of a spoon to lightly flatten into 4-inch circles.

Top with remaining chopped raisins, and lightly press into the batter.

Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cookie comes out clean, 10 - 12 minutes.

MAKES 6 SERVINGS

HG FYI: Truvia spoonable calorie-free sweetener is about twice as sweet as sugar. If using a no-calorie granulated sweetener that measures cup-for-cup like sugar instead of Truvia, double the amount called for in this recipe.

Fun Flavor Variations!

Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Cookies - Swap out the raisins for 1 cup of chopped freeze-dried apples: mix 1/2 cup into the batter, and press 1/2 cup into the cookies before baking. Each Apple Cinnamon Breakfast Cookie will have 183 calories and a SmartPoints® value of 5*.

Chocolate Chip Breakfast Cookies - Trade the raisins for 1/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips: half inside, and half on top. Each of these will have 212 calories and a SmartPoints® value of 7*.

Nutty Breakfast Cookies - Replace those raisins with 1/4 cup of your favorite chopped nuts: almonds, walnuts, and pecans are all great! (You know the drill: Half the nuts gets mixed in, and half of 'em go on top.) Around 195 calories and a SmartPoints® value of 5* for one of these!

Cranberry Breakfast Cookies - Instead of raisins, use an equal amount of dried sweetened cranberries in the recipe. Chomp into a Cranberry Breakfast Cookie for 188 calories and a SmartPoints® value of 5*.
